Essence Music Festival

Prince Album Covers Through the Years

Prince jumped on the scene in 1978 with For You and, since then, has been putting in work! The music legend is prolific, to say the least, releasing an album a year for the following three decades. Let's take a trip down memory lane and look back at the amazing artwork on each of his LP covers. Let us know which album is your favorite!
